It’s turning into an interesting week at RealNetworks HQ. Earlier this week, COO John Giamatteo announced that he was leaving the company, and now CEO Rob Glaser is following him out of the door. His departure is pretty sudden – he’s been replaced on an interim basis by the company’s general counsel and EVP of corporate development Bob Kimball. TechCrunch suggests that the “final nail in the coffin” may have been RealNetworks’ setback in its court battle with movie studios over its RealDVD DVD copying software. However, Glaser claims he’s been mulling the decision for some time, and plans to spend more time with his family, as well as “civic and other projects outside Real”. He’ll remain as chairman of the company’s board.  Source: PaidContent
